PILGRIM HOLDS UP ICON OF ST. KATERI TEKAKWITHA DURING CANONIZATION AT VATICAN

A pilgrim holds up an icon of St. Kateri Tekakwitha before a Mass of canonization for seven new saints in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican Oct. 21. Among the new saints declared by Pope Benedict XVI were two North Americans — St. Kateri, an American Indian born in upstate New York who died in Canada in 1680, and St. Marianne Cope, who worked with leprosy patients on the Hawaiian island of Molokai.
